Action Group Pressure Vessels
Action Group Remote Operators
AGPV Coordinator: Mauricio Calva (Chevron)
The out-of-service guidelines are being utilized by our Collaborative. The complement, our technology landscape document, is currently underway and will be the second half of the comprehensive pressure vessel inspection guidelines. To help further identify value for robotic consideration, the comparison report for manual man-entry methods versus robotic systems is also being circulated for comment. Together these three documents will become the foundation for robotic systems as they are applied to pressure vessels today and in the future.
AGRO Coordinator: Ted Manning (BP)
The intrinsic value of the action group stems from both the participation of the members and the support and resources of the Sprint Robotics team. A curated source of use cases, knowledge sharing, and technology roadmapping in the action group will enable and accelerate the uptake of robotic solutions.
SRAP Coordinator: Anthony Biviano (Woodside)
“Bringing industry, end-users, and vendors together to share and develop real use cases progresses innovation and creates a sustainable robotics market to allow all collaborators to thrive.”
SREU Coordinator: Ekkehard Zwicker (Waygate Technologies)
“The European Chapter played an active role in setting up and influencing the European Robotics Roadmap which will help to guide the research activities as well as future research grants into a direction we regard as key for our industry. A main achievement was to get Inspection & Maintenance as one of the four key pillars of robotic activities in European robotic research.”
SRNA Coordinator: Eric Sjerve (IRISNDT)
“SRNA has significantly accelerated the use of commercially available systems by connecting directly with end users at their sites of operation, while also facilitating their continued development supported by asset owner needs.”
